Former Rainbow Studios chairman Earl Jarred and vice chairman Jeff Padden, together with fellow Rainbow Studios employees Rick Baltman and Robb Rinard, have announced that they have formed a new independent game studio named 2XL Games. Previously famous for titles such as Motocross Madness and ATV Offroad Fury, Rainbow Studios was purchased by THQ in November 2001. 2XL Games, like Rainbow Studios, is based in Phoenix, Arizona and the new company is already working on its first title. Further information on the company can be found at the developer’s official website. "We are very excited about the creation of 2XL Games," said Baltman, former lead technology programmer for Rainbow Studios. "We plan to break new ground by integrating graphics, physics and animation in original, creative ways." "We want to innovate gameplay, while making sure the game rocks," said Rinard, designer for Motocross Madness, ATV Offroad Fury, Splashdown and MX Unleashed, "Our new studio gives us a wonderful opportunity to bring our own distinct vision of what a next generation game can be."
